The plan of the house all week has been to make Brendon think he's being evicted tonight instead of Rachel. However, the person they'll be evicting is Rachel. They want to blindside Brendon so that he's out of sorts for the HOH competition.
At the beginning of the week, I doubted that they would keep the plan alive and it would be tossed aside along with every other idea that seems to pop up so early. The plan is still full steam ahead though. Rachel will probably have a nervous breakdown tonight - either when Julie announces her eviction or during her interview with Julie. There's no telling what Brendon might do.
I get that the other hamsters don't like Brenchel. Hell, I don't like Brenchel. I can't help but wonder why none of these ding dongs in the house aren't more interested in their two jury votes though. You stick it out in the house with Brendon and Rachel all that time and then, when it's the first week of jury, you decide to just lose it with them and send them out of the house in such a dramatic fashion?
There's no doubt that Brendon and Rachel have had a bad week. Some of it they definitely brought on themselves. But some of it was also brought on by the others in the house. I'm just thankful they didn't hear all of the vile and nasty things that were said about them behind their backs.
Do you think this surprise switch eviction is a good idea? If so, why? Is it because it just makes good TV? Do you think that this helps anybody's game or vote in the jury house? What do you think Brendon's and Rachel's reaction will be on the show tonight?
So Brenchel are nominated, and Rachel is staring daggers at Matt as hard as she possibly can. It's actually quite comical. If you want to see Rachel kill vegetables, flashback to 7:25 pm House Time.
Everyone's in the kitchen, so, they took their ball (read: salad) and went home (read: into the cabana room).
Rachel: I can't do this alone.
Brendon: If I win the POV, I'm using it on you.
Rachel: I'm not strong. *Cue crying*
Hello, Rachel? You signed up for Big Brother by yourself, you came into the house by yourself. One person will be left standing. Can this girl get a grip?
Earlier today, Matt, Rachel and Ragan were together in the cabana room. When Matt and Rachel started to talk game, Ragan was about to leave the room, to "give them their time to talk". Rachel said something to the effect of "no, you can stay, cause you two are a partnership". Ragan got pissed and they both told Rachel they had no idea what she was talking about. Ragan really didn't appreciate it.
Immediately after the spat, Brendon confronted Ragan and said he heard "two people ganging up" on "his girlfriend". Ragan explained that Brendon wasn't privy to the conversation, so anything he has to say about it means nothing. Ragan began explaining what really happened:
Rachel was trying to out an alliance in the worst way--just casually saying "oh, you two are together, so it's ok if you stay"--as if Matt and Ragan would have just gone along with it. Naturally Ragan defended himself. When people were curious as to what the hell was going on, and Ragan was explaining what happened, Rachel immediately came around and told him "no one needs to know what happened." In what world, Rachel? Hello, it's Big Brother. It's a bunch of people in a house, with nothing else to do. ANYTHING that goes on is everyone else's business.
Rachel apologized soon thereafter, but her craziness already rubbed everyone the wrong way. As if she needed the help.
Before the in-house lockdown that everyone is under now, Rachel was laying in the have-not room, by herself. Matt decided to break the ice, and check on her, which opened the door for others to come join her. Brendon and Rachel are in the have-not room now, talking about dinner, she's claiming she doesn't want to eat.
Poor Rachel. Boo-effin'-hoo.
There is still no "Nominations Today" screen, however, the house knows there's something going on. They've been talking about Pandora's Box--clueless as to what is possibly in store for them.
You know, it's not enough that Brendon and Rachel formed their showmance 24 hours upon entering the Big Brother House. It's not enough that they slurp each other constantly.
It's not enough that Rachel's fake laugh might drive me insane. It's not enough that Brendon wears the apron and frilly panties in their relationship and is of such a sensitive nature that butterflies and woodland fairy creatures call him their king.
But they have to hold hands to take a nap? Seriously? Are you kidding me?
The hamsters had an early wakeup call this morning in preparation for today's Power of Veto competition. After bitching and moaning for a bit they all finally got up and began moving around. There was plenty of complaining from Britney about her new Have Not bed (chaise lounge) and speculation from all about Big Brother calling them to the Diary Room so late.
Eventually though the players were picked for the POV competition. We knew Rachel would be playing along with her two nominees, Britney and Monet. Lane, Enzo, and Brendon would be joining them in the backyard for a little afternoon fun. Britney and Monet knew that they had to win the POV themselves in order to guarantee their safety this week as there was no chance nobody else would save either one of them if they won POV.
After more than three hours of trivia on the feeds, the hamsters finally reappeared on my small screen. Brendon and Rachel were up in the HOH room talking about a replacement nominee. Oh my goodness, that means that either Monet or Britney won it!
In the Have Nots room Enzo, Britney, and Monet were going on about the competition. Monet was crying and Britney and Enzo began trying to figure out the votes to save Monet. Guess what that means! Britney won the POV! Woohoo!
The competition itself was a timed competition. Britney said she was the first to drop. Enzo said he went fourteen seconds over. As the houseguests talked more about the competition, it sounds like they had to do something as close to an hour without going over. Enzo just keeps going on to Brenchel about being fourteen seconds over and how if he had won POV everything could have stayed the same and Britney would have gone home. (He doesn't know that Monet is Brenchel's target.)
Rachel was talking to Brendon about asking Britney not to use the POV at all and they would guarantee to her that Monet would go home over her. Hey guys, there is NO WAY that Britney would pull a Marcellas. They also tossed around putting Kathy up as a pawn but they're worried that Kathy would get all emotional and take it personally. They're also still tossing around using Matt as the replacement nominee and feel that he'd be cool with it.
So there's no definite replacement yet but I'm sure once Brenchel gets more alone time tonight a decision will be made. I think they're going to go round and round a bit but will find their way back to the Matt plan. No matter what happens, I just Monet to go home this week! She's so boring! And while Britney can certainly be a little bitch at times, she's not an idiot and acts more like she wants to play the game. I love that about her!
What do you think about Britney winning the POV? Are you happy, sad, or mad? Who do you think Rachel should replace Britney with to ensure Monet's eviction?
